The Nodachi-class Star Destroyer was designed to give the Jade Worlds a vessel equivalent to the command ships of nearby governments. Developed mainly for propaganda purposes, it was often prone to malfunctions. The prototype, Nodachi, was completed just prior to the Uul'ba-Rai incursion.
As of 15 ABY, the Shau'ghunate Guard has upgraded the Nodachi design using technology from the Isen Star Empire, the Black Star Confederacy, the Joyite civilization and other sources. Since the Nodachi has been repaired using technology from the galactic mainstream and other sources, its performance is virtually identical to the updated version; the above stats hold true for the Mark II and the Nodachi itself as well, and thus for all intents and purposes are the only stats for this class of ship.
